BESPOKE GARDEN DESIGN

A bespoke garden is crafted from ideas and visions beyond our immediate context. This requires an investment in time in which to explore these elusive ideas and transform them into a tangible form – a visual Garden Concept. This investment, known as ‘design’, gives you the luxury of clarity and transparency around what your garden will look like, before the construction or planting phases begin.

GARDEN CONCEPTS

Illustrative and informative drawings are needed to bring a garden’s design to life and to enable estimating, construction and planting.

Garden Concepts have various levels of detail: Schematic, Basic, Detailed, Planting. While a Detailed Garden Concept is ideal for complete clarity, sometimes a less detailed concept is adequate. Concepts can be developed in stages to assist budget and project management. Your beautifully designed Garden Concept may contain: photos, illustration, perspective drawings, to scale measurements, realistic 3D models… Our designers work within your budget to convey your concept and necessary detail in the most expressive way.
